    First, I'm not the GOP. Second, this program would not add any significant amount of debt. All it does is allow the money that would be spent on a child in public school be used in another public school, or a private school. The same amount of money is being spent on the same child's education.

    You're not concerned with increased short-term debt for schools that lose money, budgets that have been planned out for years .

    A whole lot of info that doesn't really address my point. In my school district, revenues were $18,000 per student. Of that 79.5% ($14,292) was local, 18.5% ($3325) was state and 2% was federal ($359) was federal. Why couldn't the $3684 ($3325+$359) follow the student where ever they may attend school (assuming in the same state)?

    No, I'm not. Schools need to strive to be competitive so that people will want to send their kids there. Sending kids to substandard schools and rob them of an education screws them for life.
